Last month we were visited by a South Korean travel reality show. They shot over two days here at Tekapo Springs, having their main character join in on the fun. She relaxed in the hot tubs, practiced her best sliding stance on the TRIPPO and she even helped out as part of the staff for the day!
One of our staff members Kevin got in on the fun and participated in the show. I was even interviewed about living and working in New Zealand as a foreigner. It was hilarious to watch them film as both Kevin and I were quite shy in front of the camera! All in all, we had a great time with the crew and were so excited to be a part of it. They loved Tekapo Springs and want to come back for a proper holiday next year. I'd say we did our job then!
Tekapo Springs is a proud official business partner of the Alps2Ocean Cycle Trail. Last Wednesday night we had a great turnout for the grand opening of the Lake Tekapo Alternative Route and I even did a little talk about Instagram for busineses!!
The next day about 15 of us took to the trail and biked 54 kms to Twizel. We had a great day meeting new members, having lunch and riding along Lake Pukaki. If you haven't gone out on the trail yet, you're missing out! What a great way to see the beauty of the Mackenzie Region.
Our Summer Tube Park will be closing as of February 1st but don't worry, they will be re-opening for Easter and school holidays at the end of March. Stay tuned for news on the exact opening dates!
We've had one killer start to the summer season! With record numbers and the opening of our new cooler pools and kid's aqua play area, Tekapo Springs has been busy.
Our TRIPPO continues to be the big attraction for both kids and adults. At 11 metres high and three different slides, it's fun for the whole family.
Our new cooler pools are just what we needed! Visitors and staff are loving the new additions and find it a wonderful alternative to the hot pools, especially on scorching days. The kid's aqua play provides a nice area for adults to soak in the new pools and keep an eye on the young ones while they run around in the new water features and fountains.
Overall, it's been a cracker of a summer already! We're excited to keep the momentum going from the holiday break all throughout the year!
